Detect Thoughts

You place a small copper object in your hand, such as a copper coin. As you rub the object, you quietly ask your target to share their thoughts with you. You get vague impressions of what's on their mind. If they resist your spell, they have an uncanny sense that you specifically are watching their thoughts.

Action - 1 Creature (30 ft.) - 2nd Level (Divination) - VSM - Concentration (1 Minute)

Utility Spell

This spell has no effect on a creature with an intelligence score of 3 or lower or one that doesn't speak a language. The spell can penetrate barriers, but 2 feet of rock, 2 inches of any metal other than lead, or a thin sheet of lead blocks you.

Wisdom Save

  • Failure: You can read the surface thoughts of your target.

  • Success: No effect. The creature becomes aware of your presence in their mind and knows you were trying to read their thoughts.

While you can read the surface level thoughts of a creature, you can learn the following information:

  • The creature's general emotional state.

  • Their general attitude towards the other creatures they can see.

  • The specific action they plan to take in the next 6 seconds.

  • The location of the creature, if they move out of your sight.

  • Additionally, you have advantage on insight checks towards the affected creature.
